Re: [1540] alone?

You need to pay better attention to exactly what the young girl is saying. You've seen this before [1035] and [1327] were what sprang to mind for me. My feeling is that "that girl" refers to Yaku, and this isn't a scene shift, just a viewpoint shift. More speculatively, is the the little girl anoth...

The castle is wrong for Disneyland, and since Fred is meticulous about architecture, I'm pretty sure that was not what he intended. There was a bit of discussion when it turned up before - you might want to check that if you're particularly interested.

Re: [1538] Mad

Yaku is not Miho's responsibility once she's out of immediate danger. Her mother is also the only other member of the fox clan (AFAIK) who Miho knows. That's why I think she will take Yaku to the hospital - both to hand over the kid, and to pass on the information about the feud hotting up.

Re: [1537] an answer

Oh man, Junpei is pissed off big time. He made one hell of an entrance, I wonder if his current emotional state has supercharged his Ninja abilities. He heard the distress call from the daughter of the woman that he is in love with and made a couple of super Ninja leaps and trashed the gathered Nin...

Miho's got her war face on......and I suspect that Yaku is going to have a really good cry once this is over....

This reminds me of this scene from Orphan Black https://youtu.be/eotcYgbthOE?t=2m45s
I loved that scene (and the show). Thanks for reminding me.

Why would Miho call on Junpei? The last time they met she fought him to a standstill. He's not stronger than her war form.
But at that point he was trying to help her, and she picked up on that after the first exchange, so neither of them were fighting full-on.

Re: [1533][WIP][TWITCH] swimming back to shore [?]

Suggestion:

Most of these WIP threads only get one or two comments. Rather than start and lock a new one for every comic, perhaps we could have an ongoing Twitch thread? I think that might make it easier to look for SFS, etc.

Re: [1532] The battlefield before me

A strip with no dialogue. Very classy.

I don't particularly associate the flower with Miho. A very similar flower was seen leaving granninja's hand when she dismissed Miho in [1529]. It still could be Miho returning the diss, or alluding to the classic motif of warriors falling like cherry blossom.

Certainly what she's doing now isn't what she was designed to do when Tsubasa first got her...... I'm not so sure. Remember that she was to provide a safe emotional outlet for her user? For example how she tried to "be there" for Piro when she thought Nanasawa had rejected him. Junko is now the per...

Re: [1529] The needs of my story

Since there are story types, and we know Miho to be an analogue for a specific type, I would say there is reasonable presumption that there are other analogues for other types.

Re: [1529] The needs of my story

I would have thought not.

Again just impressions, but I see grandma as head of one family. Head ninja I see in the context of a larger organization, possibly across several clans.

Junpei's attitude seems to suggest different people.

Re: [1528] An old story that needs to be finished

The question in the previous comic about whether Mugi was Tokyo kitsune was likely strategic. She was trying to find out if she might be putting her Ninja family into a fight with the local foxgirl clan. The Himeji clan is far away and might not even come to Mugi/Yaku's defense given the poor famil...
